Project report. University of Birmingham (KAR id:68439)


The Transform Autism Education (TAE) project focused on the domain of ‘good autism

practice’ in the education of pupils with autism in the UK, Greece and Italy with the overall

objectives to:

• Research good autism practice in education.

• Create professional development programmes in Greece and Italy.

• Enhance the knowledge and practice of school staff.

• Facilitate the inclusion of autistic children in primary schools in those countries.

Funded by the European Commission through Erasmus Plus Key Action 2, Strategic Partnerships

scheme, and led by Principal Investigator Dr. Karen Guldberg, the project involved a range of

Greek, Italian and UK partners. It employed the Autism Education Trust (AET) collaborative

training schemes in the UK as a founding model. While the requirements of each country were

distinct, and so necessitated careful adaptations of the materials to their specific needs, what

united all aspects of the project was a desire to improve the educational inclusion of autistic

children, as well as their general experiences in school and their outcomes.
